Call for Papers

Annual Meeting of the European Society of Cognitive Systems

Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

Deadline for submission of abstracts: July 1st, 2015

Jordi Vallverdú & Vincent C. Müller


“Cognitive systems” is to be broadly understood as an interlinked research of natural and artificial cognitive systems. We welcome participants from all disciplines that are relevant for fundamental issues of present and future robotics and AI, especially cognitive science, computer science, neuroscience and philosophy. We are especially interested in bioinspired techniques, models and methods.

  • AI and cognitive science
  • autonomous vehicles
  • cognitive systems in industry
  • communication (verbal and non-verbal)
  • dynamical systems
  • embedded, situated, distributed cognition
  • embodiment, enaction, morphology
  • social impact of AI and robotics
  • goals, emotions, values, free will
  • grounded cognition
  • hybrid systems, cyborgs
  • interactive systems
  • learning, evolution
  • neuroscience and cognitive systems
  • multi-agent systems
  • perception, sensing
  • performance and intelligence testing
  • real-world systems
  • robotics
  • robustness and adaptability


We request anonymous abstracts of 600-1000 words (plus references) in plain text or PDF, plus a short abstract of up to 120 words. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference (orally or as posters) and published in the proceedings. (We plan to provide a copy of the proceedings to the corresponding author.) We foresee slots of at least 20 minutes per talk.

All submissions will be reviewed double-blind by at least two members of the programme committee. Submission online at EasyChair:

Technical note: The EasyChair system will ask you for an “abstract” and a “paper”. For us, “abstract” refers to the short abstract (up to 120 words) in plain text, while “paper” refers to the long abstract (600-1000 words), which can be submitted as a PDF or plain text. Accordingly, please do not use the check-box “Abstract Only”. (The abbreviation “Corr. Auth.” stands for “corresponding author”.)


Details on the publication for 2015 are not yet finalized but we will publish a volume of proceedings to include all accepted papers, planned to be published within 6 months of the event. Submission and presentation at the conference do not entail an obligation of the author(s) to publish in the conference proceedings.
